Company Says Business Is On A "Steady Pathway Of Growth"
Yakima, Washington based light aircraft designer and
manufacturer CubCrafters has announced a major expansion of their
FAA certified manufacturing facility, adding 15,000 square feet by
leasing a building near the Yakima airport.
The new facility became fully operational December 18th. Located
less than a mile from CubCrafters’ existing 25,000 square
foot headquarters and main manufacturing facility, the newly
occupied building houses a weld shop and Computer Numerically
Controlled (CNC) machine shop. The move frees up space at the main
facility for a research and development department, a delivery
hanger and an updated, centralized and expanded parts
“It’s extremely gratifying to announce this
expansion,” says CubCrafters General Manager Randy Lervold.
“With our business on a steady pathway of growth, this
additional space will improve manufacturing efficiencies and more
effectively serve our customers.”
“We’ve needed to do this for a long time”
added CubCrafters Owner Jim Richmond, “Our planes are selling
well, and if we get even a little help from the economy, we will
need to increase our production rate. This will also let us create
a dedicated R&D department for the development of future
products.” The expansion also creates job opportunities.
Openings in several departments have been posted and can be
reviewed at the CAREERS
